Interview

Have you ever used a typewriter?

Professionally? No. But I still have Dad's Royal at home on a shelf of ancient media technology.

Who's your favorite fictional journalist?

Nellie Bly is real and great, but I enjoyed the portrayal of her mental hospital infiltration by Laura Dern for "Drunk History."
